How to delete saved voice recordings within your Google Home?

Step By Step Guide To Delete Saved Voice Recordings From Google Home: Google Home is a futuristic gadget in the form of a smart speaker that takes your commands as you speak normally through voice support and answers back to you. Google is developing its Google Home product by introducing it to artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies. The current Google Home model saves everything you say whether it makes sense to it or not and it keeps learning from the saved audio from time to time.

Previously, it used to record everything you would say to it or anybody else when activated and it will only respond to the commands that matched its database and discard the rest.But now, irrespective of what you say to it or to anybody else, everything is getting saved. This is really concerning for many as it messes with personal privacy.
